  • Preheat oven to 375°F. Mix brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of the orange juice, 1 1/2 teaspoons each of the cumin and thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and allspice in small bowl. Rub seasoning mixture evenly over pork. Place pork in large resealable plastic bag. Refrigerate 15 minutes or longer for extra flavor.

  • Meanwhile, for the salsa, mix black beans, avocado, red onion, vinegar, and remaining 1 tablespoon orange juice, 1/2 teaspoon each cumin and thyme, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in medium bowl. Cover. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  • Place pork in 13x9-inch baking dish. Roast pork 15 to 20 minutes or until pork is to desired doneness. Remove from oven. Let stand 5 minutes. Slice pork and serve in warmed tortillas topped with black bean and avocado salsa.
